Some of you might recall that I’ve been bicycling to work, about 10 miles each way.
Over the last two weeks, I haven’t been able to ride much because it’s been too muddy. Today I rode to work.
It was about 25F-30F out there, so this was my first below-freezing bicycle ride. It went OK, though I was somewhat on the cool side — I’ll add more layers next time.
Today, I wore wool socks, bicycling shorts, tights over that, my short sleeve shirt, a long-sleeve shirt over it, full gloves, and a balaclava. I should have worn probably one more layer everywhere, but I survived and I’m not frozen.
You may now commence speculation about whether or not I am crazy.
